Transmissions from Deep Ellum, a Snarky Puppy podcast
Coming November 16 to WBGO Studios

Snarky Puppy is “the funkiest WhatsApp group you would ever hear,” according to bandmember Larnell Lewis. And he’s not entirely off - this band of 19 musicians pushes what it means to be a band, to write songs, and produce truly original music.

In March 2022, the innovative jazz collective descended upon Dallas to rehearse a selection of new songs. The group then took the stage for 16 shows over eight nights and recorded the material before a live audience for their new album, Empire Central.

In this three-part series, we take you inside the creation of Empire Central.

From the unique songwriting process to the rehearsals, where the band performs songs for the first time without music sheets, to the recording process and final song selection, you’ll get an unforgettable look inside the creative process of one of the world’s most renowned jazz super groups.

Produced by GroundUP Music and Osiris Media. Presented by Osiris Media, in partnership with WBGO Studios.

Hosted by Jazz Night in America producer Alex Ariff.
